Former Super League and NRL prop George Burgess to star in a film alongside Hollywood’s Liam Hemsworth

FORMER Super League and NRL prop forward George Burgess is set to star in a film alongside Hollywood’s Liam Hemsworth.

Burgess is currently on the hunt for a new rugby league club following his exit from the St George Illawarra Dragons and though a reunion with his twin brother, Tom, at the South Sydney Rabbitohs has been touted, such a deal has not yet come to fruition.

Instead, George will now be heading for the silver screen as the hulking forward has landed a cameo role in a new Russell Crowe film.

Burgess is currently filming on Australia’s Gold Coast with both Luke and Liam Hemsworth shooting Land of Bad, which will hit cinema screens in 2023.

The film Land of Bad centres around a Delta Force team on a mission in the Philippines who are trapped without weapons, with Burgess playing Private Cooper on screen.

The whole Burgess family and Russell Crowe have been close for over a decade with the four brothers Sam, Luke, George and Tom all playing for the Rabbitohs in the NRL.

George left St George after revealing he didn’t see eye to eye with head coach Anthony Griffin.

“I just didn’t get along with Hook and he made it pretty clear to me, he pretty much wrote me off,” George previously said.

“So I wasn’t too keen to go back to train under him to be honest. At the end of the day all you want is a coach to believe in you. There is no point me going back there if the coach doesn’t believe in me.”

It remains to be seen where George’s rugby league future lies, but it is certainly an interesting time for the 30-year-old.
